AIM Chattanooga Offers Businesses Internships 101 Tutorial, Reveals New Area Intern Job Board

Monday, February 17, 2014

AIM Chattanooga is offering an opportunity for area businesses to come together for a panel discussion on the basics of running internship programs on Monday, Feb. 24. A panel will discuss the pros and cons of establishing internship programs, with advice on the best ways to set up, manage, and advertise internships. 

Panelists include representatives from colleges, universities, employers with existing internship programs, and a representative from the Public Education Foundation and STEM Hub. Between them they answer some of the basic questions: How do I go about hiring an intern? What type of reporting is required? Do I have to pay them? What are the advantages for me as an employer in implementing an intern program? Why hire interns? What are the benefits for students, business, and community?  

The panel discussion, open Q/A session, and lunch are being presented by AIM, The Chattanooga Technology Council, The Public Education Foundation, STEM Hub and Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce. The event will include time to ask questions, to share an experience, or expand the discussion.

Wrapping up will be AIM's Penny Posey-Hughey and Ronna-Renee Jackson from the Chattanooga Technology Council with the announcement and presentation of a new community-wide internship job board scheduled to launch in April. 

This free community wide forum is open to the public and anyone interested in learning more about internships. For more information visit: http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=drma84cab&oeidk=a07e8vws8j7b89c25ec
